Hello. I'm new here and I have a question about using Pro Tools 8 with Garritan Personal Orchestra. I have been successfully using both GPO and the Concert/Marching Band software as plug ins in Pro Tools 7. I'm using these with the Kontakt Player. I heard (and I think I read something here awhile back) about there being compatibility issues with the Kontakt Player and Pro Tools 8. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm avoiding installing anything new that might mess up my current system, which is working very nicely. But Pro Tools 8 has some new features I'd like to use.
Also, could someone please talk to me about the Aria Player? What is it, and do I need it?
I recently upgraded to PT 8 and i love it. I can't say much about kontakt player compatibility except that i did open an older session with both kontakt 2 and kontakt player instruments, and it did open and play. i haven't tried anything else yet. but if i do. i'll keep you posted.
